Holidays wishlist

Happy December everyone! I've been so excited for this month to start for a while, not least because of the 'Blogmas' event happening everywhere. As you might guess, I won't be partaking
this winter but I'm so excited to see what everyone comes up with each day of Advent. I'm probably going to have a lot of reading to catch up on in January, which is always a great thing! Nevertheless, I have some very fun, exciting ideas lined up to take me through the holidays, starting with a little wishlist I hastily composed between feeding Oscar his Grandpa's sunday lunch - I know it's Wednesday - and lighting candles in the flat.

1. Tulle & Lace Demi bra, Victoria's Secret - Somehow I got dragged over to the Victoria Secret site during Cyber Monday... little persuasive adverts have been following me ever since! I'm not usually your girl to go swooning over underwear, plus it would cost me another £16 in shipping if I ever wanted to order, but this one is just gorgeous with the sheer lace detail and tulle finishes! It's so delicate and romantic, I still can't bring myself to close the browser window. If only it came in summer dress form and then I would wear it everywhere, even in winter.

2. Super soft blanket in Sleepy Bunny - Soooo soft and adorable! I'd love a blanket like this to snuggle in during the winter. It's little faace! I've put the link to amazon: it seems to be sold out on the UK site but I think they are in stock on the US one

3. Love and Appreciation, Pandora - I've been looking out for little budget charms to decorate my bracelet but always end up back browsing Pandora. This little rose gold charm is beautiful! I love all of the Cubic Zirconia sparkles and the intricate pattern, it's such a delicate charm. 

4. Encyclopaedia of Magical Herbs - I'm really interested in growing more kinds of herbs, for use in cooking, home and magical remedies and learning more about them. Sometimes the internet can be such a vast place of information it's hard to know where to look. It's really nice to have a keepsake book to read over and refer back to, especially when you don't have to scroll down forever to access what you really want to know. I'd love to give this a read!

5. Snowman from The Snowman, M&S - I was delighted to come face to face with my favourite Christmas character in Marks and Spencers! Complete with the little snowdog by his side; I'd love to collect both of them to share with Oscar keep with me forever. Christmas wouldn't seem Christmas without seeing it on TV, singing along and feeling sad at the end.

6. Lolita Lempicka EDP - A perfume that is supposed to smell like liquorice and aniseed. Its description alone makes it sound like the most mysterious, romantic scent ever; the fact that vanilla is included is merely a bonus, as well as the adorable gold bottle design and how enchanting its reviews are.

7. Time to Pink, Soap and Glory - Anything Soap and Glory is welcome on my wishlist and I especially adore the little holiday sets! I've recently tried and loved their Supercat Eyeliner and I'm looking forward to the day I can try more cosmetics from the range. This set contains a wonderful variety of products, including the rollerball fragrance that captures the scent of some of their amazing bath products. 

8. The Victorian House, Judith Flanders - I'd definitely love to give this a read as I'm really enjoying the Victorian City at the moment. The Victorian era is one of my favourite periods in history and I'm especially interested in reading about peoples' lives, routines and experiences. 

I'm so excited about sharing oranges, having family time and playing Cards Against Humanity (so sorry), it's the little things that make me passionate about the festive season: all the sensory things such as the smell of pine needles, breath billowing, lights sparkling, friends laughing.
Have you got any winter candles lit? I'm burning white chocolate and cinnamon, yum yum!

  2. I'm not partaking in Blogmas this year either (I wish I had the time!), but I like seeing what other bloggers come up with :) I've come across quite a few unique posts so far, so it'll be interesting to see what the rest of the months has in store.
    I like the Encyclopaedia of Magical Herbs idea! I'm a Parks and Wilderness Management major and dendrology was a course that I had to take. Although we didn't study herbs specifically, I'm now a pro at identifying plants when I go hiking! :)

  16. Aww really loved this wish list, some of the items are so pretty and romantic. I think I went in Victoria’s Secret in Leeds but that’s the only time I’ve been, they have some lovely stuff. The Soap&Glory set looks promising, as I’m really intrigued by the roller ball. It’s fun to collect Pandora charms! Lovely post! :-) xx
